Without notice for several weeks, the Cititel Hotel construction is progressing quite rapidly. From my last observation, it was reaching level 2 about 3 weeks ago. As seen today, the hotel has grown to level 5 and begin over taking the adjacent Hokkien Association Building. It is planned to be a 12-storey building, which mean it is almost approaching half of its height. Although it will not dominate the city skyline but would be very noticeable from Ipoh Padang.
